Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend gave to lots to smile about. We had a great one and yesterday hubby was off for the entire day-yeah! So what to do, but drive up to Estes Park. I've been having an issue with my left foot-nothing much, just some pain in my toes which developed when I bought the wrong pair of tennis shoes. After I returned them and tried another pair, I quickly returned those as well. I have loved my brand and got another pair the same brand. I haven't worn them outside until Friday and you guessed it my toes were still bothered. Not as much as with my the other brands I tried, but enough that I didn't want to walk 3 miles. So my wise daughter suggested just wearing my Sketcher sandals until my feet were better. Good idea. Yesterday, we walked Hunter down to the end of the street before jumping in the car to head to the mountains. I wasn't planning on hiking at all, but that is what we did. We had a wonderful day up there, the sun was out and it was just perfect. There were times when I could tell my toes were annoyed, but in all it wasn't a bad hike. So including walking Hunter, we calculated that we walked over 6 miles. After we were done, we went to lunch at our favorite place up there-The Egg and I. Instead of just having a quick salad for lunch, I had the special omelette-it was so good and left me comfortable, but I decided not to eat dinner.
Other than that, not much was accomplished over the weekend. This week will be pretty open-today I may go bike riding with Kam; figured it's better for my feet than walking. I am also going to the Good Feet store and see if they have any recommendations for me. Hubby has a pair of Reebok tennis shoes that have a deep gel cushion and I may end up with a pair of those. Having bought one new pair of Oasic shoes, I don't really want to buy another new pair but a girl has to walk. I can tell the problem starts in the ball of my foot and affects my toes, especially the tips of my toes.
I also have a friend(and her hubby)that are dog sitting down in Longmont, so I think we'll take lunches up to the park on Wednesday so they can see the beauty we enjoy.
I hope you found some time to get outdoors over the weekend and that your week starts out well.
Joy to you!
